Abstract

Background:Cigarette smoking is a serious health problem of most societies. Smoking has been suggested to contribute to a number of diseases including male infertility. The present study was aimed at studying effect of cigarette smoking on Sperm morphology of infertile men. Material And Methods: A total of one hundred infertile men (50 Non-smokers and 50 Smokers) between the age group 20-45 years were taken into study. The Sperm morphology in the infertile Non-smokers and infertile Smokers group were compared using Z Test. Infertile Smokers which were divided into Group A (≥1 and ≤10 cigarettes/ day), Group B (>10 and <20 cigarettes/ day) and Group C (≥20 cigarettes/ day) were analyzed for Sperm morphology by ANOVA Test. Result: We observed that Sperm morphology was significantly lower (p<0.01) in infertile Smokers group than infertile Non-smokers group. We also observed that Sperm morphology was significantly decreased (p<0.01) in accordance with the severity of smoking. Conclusion: Cigarette smoking adversely affect sperm morphology.
